Letter to the ALCOHOL AND GAMING COMMISSION OF ONTARIO

CARLETON HEIGHTS AND AREA RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION

JUNE 23, 2020
TO: ALCOHOL AND GAMING COMMISSION OF ONTARIO

FROM: DARREN DICKS, CHARA PRESIDENT

SUBJECT: Cannabis Retail Store 888 Meadowlands Drive East, Ottawa, On. File number:861233

The Board of Directors at their, June 23, 2020 meeting passed the following Resolution/Motion. L. Neville moved, seconded by Y. Paquette:

THAT THE CARLETON HEIGHTS AND AREA RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION is opposed to a Cannabis Retail Store being authorized at the property of 888 Meadowlands Drive East, Ottawa, ON. Based on the grounds it is not in the “Public Interest” in that it is in close proximity to the Boys and Girls Community Centre on Prince of Wales at Meadowlands, and the Public Park at Hogs Back Rideau Canal Locks and Rideau Canoe Club and others who may be vulnerable in our neighbourhood/community in this area.”

Resolution/Motion: Carried unanimously.

We as a community association feel that such a store in this location would create undue influence on children, minors and those in the vulnerable sector, and as such we oppose having such a store in this location

Your co-operation in this matter would be appreciated. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

On behalf of the CHARA board,

Darren Dicks
CHARA President
